NYC’s new hot spot, Haus has been turning out some great parties this summer ever since its grand opening in the former Canal Room space. Found right on the corner of West Broadway and Canal Street, Haus combines the intrigue of its old school architecture with its new age interior and top of the line sound system inside its intimate space.

We had the chance to stop by their new Tuesday night party, Haus Collective, for its first night. This new Tuesday night series will feature different DJs from NYC with ROKLYFE visuals provided by artist Ben Moon. ROKLYFE is Ben’s own complete fusion of art and music. As DJs play their sets, Ben’s ROKLYFE visuals play on a screen behind them. Simple enough right? Well, there’s a little more to ROKLYFE than meets the eye. The visuals you are seeing are not just a slideshow made on a computer but rather the culmination of how Ben’s perception of the music reflects visual, moving art. Just as DJs mix their music live, Ben is putting together visuals that complement the music based on the sounds.
